In her latest series Horizons of Fog Irena Armutidisová continues to photograph rural landscapes, seeking motives and details that may bear a meaning beyond a mere time limited message.

When looking at Irena Armutidisová’s pictures in Horizons of Fog we may notice that her works might be better understood by means of progressive steps. At first glance we can clearly see what the pictures of the series have in common: an almost “minimalist” geometric line and the light, which – here as well as in the artist’s earlier landscape series – is represented by clear, almost architectural arrangements of natural forms. However, against this rational order, each image is pervaded by something seemingly odd and shapeless – fog. It is sometimes dense, or permeable and half translucent, rising or falling, or perhaps slowly winding over vast fields like a serpent. It is caught by the artist at specific moments when she presses the shutter release, as something which is stable and unchanging, contributing to the visible construction of the image. This might be the right interpretation of the word Horizons, since fog doesn’t have any solid borders. However, it allows us to perceive more precisely visual natural objects in the picture.
